Fern Phylitta Scolopendium - 9cm pot
Hart's Tongue Hardy Fern
The long, narrow uncut fronds of this fern are unlikely to be mistaken for any other. Small plants with one or two fronds a few centimetres long can be found in cracks in old walls or large luxuriant plants with 20 or more fronds, reaching 40-50 cm in length, can grow in shady patches of humus-rich soil . The spore-producing bodies, or sori, occur in short rows on the underside of the frond.
As with most ferns some degree of shade is preferred but it can survive on a sunny wall, albeit in a somewhat stunted form, as mentioned above.
Requires low maintenance
This fern is supplied in a 9cm pot
